Members of the DHG Team Accredited as CMMC Registered Practitioners
Charlotte, N.C., December 28, 2020 – Dixon Hughes Goodman (DHG), a U.S. top 20 professional services firm, is pleased to announce that key members of the firm’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) service team achieved Registered Practitioner status with the CMMC Accreditation Body and DHG is now a Registered Provider Organization (RPO) in the CMMC Marketplace. This accreditation expands the firm’s offerings to consult clients seeking the new certification and assist navigating CMMC.
“As Registered Practitioners, our CMMC team combines our experience helping contractors protect Controlled Unclassified Information and Federal Contract Information with standardized training from the CMMC Accreditation Body,” said Tom Tollerton, Managing Director and leader of the firm’s CMMC advisory services.
The CMMC framework was released in early 2020 and adopted by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to enforce protection of Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) throughout its supply chain. CMMC certification will be included as a requirement in new DoD contracts starting in early 2021, with all contracts expected to include the certification requirement by 2026.
“DHG has a reputation for providing comprehensive assurance and advisory services to contractors across the country, and we look forward to helping our clients prepare for CMMC certification required in their contract bids,” said Scott Brezler, DHG’s Managing Partner of Government Contractor Services.
The firm is registered to become an early CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO) when the full assessor program is finalized early next year. CMMC certification assessments will be performed only by accredited C3PAOs, and DHG intends to train and certify multiple members of the CMMC team to perform these assessments for clients and contractors across the country.
